Approximate running time 3 hrs. 50 min.

Renée Fleming stars in the title role of Mary ZImmerman's Met premiere production, opposite no fewer than six tenors. "This [is] Ms. Fleming's show," the New York Times says. "Armida belongs at the Met. And the company has the right star in place." Lawrence Brownlee sings Rinaldo, and Riccardo Frizza conducts. Zimmerman describes the opera as “a buried treasure, a box of jewels.” The fanciful story of the sorceress who enthralls men in her island prison of sensual delights, she says, “has an epic, enchanted quality and a tremendous visual element.”
